What was on the minds and Twitter feeds of some of our favorite moms? Ellen Pompeo surprised us all by sharing a picture of her newborn baby girl, Sienna. Kendra Wilkinson returned to Twitter for the first time since her husband’s cheating scandal. Find out what she said about her marriage. Kelly Clarkson and Kelly Ripa round out our list of the cutest and most buzz-worthy celebrity mom tweets of the week.
Grey’s Anatomy star Ellen Pompeo can sure keep a secret. The actress shared this photo of her newborn baby girl on her Instagram page with the caption, “Sienna May Ivery welcome to the world. We love you more than words can say.”
The 44-year-old Pompeo went on to explain on Twitter that her daughter was born via a surrogate.
Sienna was born via surrogate & I would like to thank my whole @ShondalandTV family for helping us enjoy these first few weeks privately ❤️U

This is the first child for Pompeo and her husband, Chris Ivery, who was born with the help of a surrogate. They are already parents to a 5-year-old daughter named Stella.
Kendra Wilkinson returned to Twitter for the first time since news broke in July that her husband, Hank Baskett, reportedly had an affair with a transsexual model. The ex NFL player allegedly cheated on Kendra when she was eight months pregnant with the couple’s second child, a daughter named Alijah.
Just wanted to say thank you for all the support. This has been the most challenging 4 months of my life, (cont) http://t.co/j8GJRdCdGS

She continued her tweet writing, “I’ve been focusing on being the best me I can be, for myself and for my babies. While some moments are sacred, fact is… I’ve lived my life in front of cameras for the last 10 years, so I chose to allow cameras to tell even the hard stories. I don’t think it’s fair or truthful to only show the good and not the bad. I don’t have all the answers, but like you, I’m a mother, a wife, a daughter and a woman, and struggles are a part of life and I am not afraid to admit that my life is not perfect. Thank you for the love… I’ve missed you all!”
Even though she has yet to share a picture of baby Alijah, she has been busy making the media rounds to promote her reality show, Kendra on Top. The new mom, who gave birth just four months ago, looks fabulous.

Talk show host Kelly Ripa just celebrated her 44th birthday — and she shared this adorable throwback picture of her wearing cute pigtails and that same sweet smile.
Ripa celebrated on her show, Live! with Kelly and Michael, with a giant Tastykake, which was a childhood favorite. We are sure she will have a wonderful family celebration tonight with her husband, Mark, and their three children: Lola, Michael and Joaquin.
